Psychological Applications in Management

The Hero's Journey [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Psychological Applications in Management by Tomi L. Wahlstrom Book Summary:

oday's business environment requires more effective leadership than ever. In the constantly changing business environment, the leader has the central responsibility of keeping people motivated and productive. Many companies have been downsizing and laying off employees, and leaving behind employees with a wounded morale. To lift this morale, the leader needs to possess characteristics and qualities that cannot be learned from courses taken in business schools alone. These characteristics and qualities can only be learned from life itself in an individual journey of individuation. The leader needs to undergo an initiation process from immature psychology to mature psychology. Traditionally, this process is what makes "men out of boys" and "women out of girls." In analytical psychology this journey is called the hero's journey, which is based on the hero myth and includes several different initiations and growing steps. This study investigates the different initiations included in the hero's journey and the importance of learning how, from them, to be a responsible, effective, charismatic, and powerful leader. The study also illustrates the archetypes, a term developed by Dr. Carl Jung (1959) to describe the original patterns that guide our behavior, involved in the hero's journey and what is required to get through the journey. Heroism is not discussed here in the overall sense in which the public defines heroism. As such, this study does not investigate what motivates people to risk and/or sacrifice their lives by attempting to save people from crashed airplanes. Although this aspect of sacrifice is always present in heroism, this aspect is just one of the many aspects of heroism. Neither a heroic act of saving lives nor being celebrated on the covers of a national newspaper is required to be recognized as a hero. Individuals are all heroes in their own way. Some individuals manifest their heroism in very silent ways (introversion), while other individuals seem always to be in the public eye (extroversion). The essence of heroism always involves taking a journey into the unknown and bringing some sort of knowledge out of the unknown that benefits either society or an organization. The hero brings new prosperity to the organizational wasteland. Heroism in mass media and movie entertainment is very different from heroism in the psychological sense and in the mythological sense, although there are some similar elements. The basic elements of the hero, the villain and the fair maiden, are always present in popular movies, but the steps of the hero's journey are often not involved, which leaves nothing more than a meaningless plot good only for entertainment purposes. These types of movies can steal an individual's sense of understanding of both the myth and the purpose of the hero's journey. This study is neither discussing the heroes of our popular culture, nor is this a study of Hollywood's creations or of celebrated athletes, or even of famed political and war heroes. The focus within this study is a hero's journey in the career of a leader, and how the journey can bring the light (individuation) into the darkness of the organizational wasteland. The legacy of Roberto Goizueta, who died in October 1997, during the writing of this dissertation, is also acknowledged. While his death in itself does not change the conclusions of this dissertation, his contribution to the Coca-Cola Company's success in traveling the hero's journey has been enormous. It remains to be seen what the future brings to this great company after losing such a charismatic and heroic leader.

Forgiveness

The Hero's Journey [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Forgiveness by Cindy Currier Book Summary:

A hero is someone who has given his or her life to something bigger than oneself. - Joseph Campbell What Cindy Currier teaches us is that everyone has the potential to be a hero. Despite years spent struggling with her troubled past, Cindy finally found the strength to let go of her trauma and move forward into a life of happiness and peace. Though this kind of healing can require a monumental amount of strength and temerity, Forgiveness: A Hero's Journey shows that any feat can be accomplished through determination and faith in God's love. Once lost in the woods of despair and hatred, Cindy faced down witches, ogres and all manner of beasts before emerging once more into the sunlight. Now, in simple sections and with heartfelt words, she explores the nature of Anger, Fear, Shame, Guilt, and ultimately Forgiveness and how it can be achieved. The journey to forgiveness is cyclical: It begins with a call to adventure (dissatisfaction with life as it is), and is followed closely by chaos (a life event that calls into question old beliefs and thought patterns), battling enemies (marshaling new coping skills and strategies), spiritual awakening (development of new insights, new self-awareness), and carrying the message home (sharing new insights with others). Following these steps will enable anyone to overcome the monsters of anger and shame and emerge from the forest into forgiveness and love, and to share that love with the world.

Mythological Storytelling

The Hero's Journey [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Mythological Storytelling by Joshua Coker Book Summary:

As a fiction writer, the goal is to create a story that has an emotional impact on the audience. We all want to write something gripping that people will share with friends and family; a narrative that resonates with the reader, and keeps them revisiting the book for years to come. Unfortunately, this is easier said than done. No matter how logical we structure our story, or how perfectly we write our prose, many of us fail to capture the power that all great stories seem to inherently possess. Even well known professionals face this problem. Think about how many times you've picked up a book by a writer you follow, or watched the latest installment in a franchise you love, only to be let down. How many forgettable novels or films have you come across in your lifetime? Some written by reputable authors and screenwriters. Even though the action, mystery, or romance was great, the story fell flat. The narrative lacked some mystical element that every great story seems to inherently possess. This is the major problem every author, writer, poet, screenwriter, and storyteller face. The answer is found in the power of myth. Through centuries of storytelling, a mythological structure called the Monomyth evolved. Some of the most powerful stories of all follow this mythic structure. In this book, fiction author Josh Coker explains how to harness the seemingly magical powers of myth so your story can reach it's fullest potential and create an emotional impact in the audience. Within these pages, you'll learn: -Definition and background of the Monomyth -Three act mythic structure. -The differences between the known world and the special world of your story -What really makes a character heroic -How plot and character feed off of each other, creating both an inner and outer journey -The 18 distinct stages of the Hero's Journey Additionally, this book provides over 72 examples from well known modern stories. Each example will help you understand Hero's Journey, and help you identify the stages in your own book. Every chapter concludes with action steps, which you can immediately take on your story. These will help you infuse mythic power and life into the narrative. By the end of the book, you'll have a basic understanding of the Hero's Journey and a road map for your own story. Ultimately, you'll ensure that your story to reaches it's full potential by taking full advantage of the Monomyth's ancient storytelling secrets.

The Fool's Excellent Adventure

The Hero's Journey [Pdf/ePub] eBook

The Fool's Excellent Adventure by Susan Rhodes Book Summary:

The Fool's Excellent Adventure: A Hero's Journey through the Enneagram and Tarot is the first book to explore the relationship between two great systems: the tarot and the enneagram. The tarot provides us with images that can spark our creative imagination. The enneagram allows us to access the gifts of the nine personality types. Used together, they help us to re-imagine the world as a place of magical significance in which each of us has a unique role to play and a unique purpose to accomplish. The hero's journey depicted here is based on Joseph Campbell's mythic vision and Carl Jung's transformational approach to psychology. Two decades ago, in his book Tarot and the Journey of the Hero, Hajo Banzhaf used the hero's journey to develop a tarot model describing the symbolic role of the 21 cards in the major arcana. He depicted the first nine cards as the Arc of the Day (nine archetypal approaches to life), the second nine as the Arc of the Night (nine challenges associated with "shadow work"), and last three as the Goal state (representing the reconciliation of the opposites within our nature). There is one card left over: The Fool. This card depicts each of us as we move through life, never sure of what we'll find around the next bend! Using Pythagorean number symbolism, it's possible to match up the nine enneagram types with the nine paths envisioned by Banzhaf. The only thing missing is a complete Arc of the Goal (one with nine cards instead of three. This book shows what a complete Arc might look like by adding six new archetypal images, thus creating 27-card symbolic tarot. Such an enneagram-informed model allows the traditional symbolism of the tarot to be informed by the relational wisdom of the enneagram. You don't need to know the tarot or enneagram to use this book. The Fool's Excellent Adventure is intended for anyone with an interest in the tarot, the enneagram, or adventurous self-discovery. Additional topics: Discovering your Enneagram Type; Using the Enneagram in Tarot Divination; Using the Tarot to Re-discover the Enneagram; Enneagram-based Tarot Spreads; The Minor Arcana and the Enneagram; Applying the 27-Card Model with a Conventional Tarot Deck; The Transformational Implications of The Fool's "Quantum Zero"; The Animating Spirit of Hermetic Philosophy; The Role of the Enneagram in the Western Mystery Tradition; The Relationship between the Tarot, Enneagram and Qabala; Linking the Enneagram and Qabala through Sacred Geometry; and The Implications of the Golden Dawn's Tarot Attributions.

The Archetypal Hero's Journey in Teaching and Learning

The Hero's Journey [Pdf/ePub] eBook

The Archetypal Hero's Journey in Teaching and Learning by Clifford Mayes Book Summary:

Educator and therapist Clifford Mayes offers an original and powerful vision of teaching and learning as a heroic journey, central to the growth of the student as an integrated being. This journey is filled with such universal human archetypes as the Wise Elder, the Trickster, the Great Mother, and the Great Father. Informed by the psychoanalytical studies of Freud, Jung, and neo-Freudian theorists, Mayes emphasizes the need for a healthy balance in the classroom between the technical and the poetical, the analytical and the intuitive. Teaching and learning are part of the great journey of individuation, and every student must be given the chance to heed the call and fulfill the archetypal role of the Hero in the true adventure of transformative education. Eschewing the corporate mentality guiding today's curriculum, Mayes advocates a pedagogy predicated upon the myth of the Hero's (Heroine's) quest, which guides both teachers and students through a series of trials, labors, transformations, and ultimate awakenings. . . . The quest is ultimately about asking and answering the great questions together--questions that transcend the merely secular and speak to the overarching issue of "What am I called do with my life?" Such questions, he persuasively argues, should be at the core of education. -- from the Foreword by Mark R. Grandstaff, University of Maryland, College Park

The Hero's Journey of Odysseus

The Hero's Journey [Pdf/ePub] eBook

The Hero's Journey of Odysseus by Josh Coker Book Summary:

This book covers Odysseus' journey through the lens of the Monomyth. By analyzing the Iliad and the Odyssey Josh Coker identifies each classic stages of the Hero's Journey. What is the Monomyth? The term "Monomyth" comes from the Greek. It is broken into two root words: 1) mono, meaning "one," and 2) mythos, meaning "story." The connotation being, the "One Story." This term was coined by author James Joyce in his most famous work, Ulysses (the Roman name for Odysseus). However, it wasn't popularized until the late 1940's when a comparative mythologist by the name of Joseph Campbell, published his seminal work, The Hero With A Thousand Faces. In his book, Campbell suggested that there are common aspects that nearly all myths throughout time have shared. These elements combine into a narrative format that can be used as an approach to mythology. Many people associate the "Hero's Journey" as synonymous with The Monomyth. Both, historical and modern storytellers have used it as an approach to analyze narratives and develop new plots and characters for contemporary audiences. According to Campbell, the Monomyth follows a three-act structure. In the first act, The Separation, a hero is called to adventure and leaves his known world for the unknown world, guided by a mentor. Once the hero crosses the threshold of adventure, they enter the second act, The Initiation. In this section, the hero faces many tests and trials, confronts his inner demons (many times represented as ghosts, monsters, minotaurs, or dragons), then goes on through stages of enlightenment. Once the hero retrieves the boon, he must return it to the normal world from which he came. This third act is called the Return. During this final section of the narrative, the hero must release the power of the boon into society in order to restore it. Many times this last act requires the hero to overcome his major flaw and make a sacrifice. Once restored, the hero and those citizens in the world are free once again to live in it. The story of Odysseus follows this format very close. Particularly, if we combine the events from the Iliad and the Odyssey we obtain a full picture of Odysseus' journey of kingship. This book makes a great companion guide for anyone wishing to learn the about the Hero's Journey or Odysseus' adventures.

The Hero with a Thousand Faces

The Hero's Journey [Pdf/ePub] eBook

The Hero with a Thousand Faces by Joseph Campbell Book Summary:

Explore the Hero's Journey in stories as old as humanity and as new as last night's dream The latest incarnation of Oedipus, the continued romance of Beauty and the Beast, stand this afternoon on the corner of 42nd Street and Fifth Avenue, waiting for the traffic light to change. — Joseph Campbell Since its release in 1949, The Hero with a Thousand Faceshas influenced millions of readers by combining the insights of modern psychology with Joseph Campbell’s revolutionary understanding of comparative mythology. In these pages, Campbell outlines the Hero’s Journey, a universal motif of adventure and transformation that runs through virtually all of the world’s mythic traditions. He also explores the Cosmogonic Cycle, the mythic pattern of world creation and destruction. As part of the Joseph Campbell Foundation’s Collected Works of Joseph Campbell, this third edition features expanded illustrations, a comprehensive bibliography, and more accessible sidebars. As relevant today as when it was first published, The Hero with a Thousand Facescontinues to find new audiences in fields ranging from religion and anthropology to literature and film studies. The book has also profoundly influenced creative artists—including authors, songwriters, game designers, and filmmakers—and continues to inspire all those interested in the inherent human need to tell stories. Reviews: “I have returned to no other book more often since leaving college than this one, and every time I discover new insight into the human journey. Every generation will find in Hero wisdom for the ages.” — Bill Moyers “In the three decades since I discovered The Hero with a Thousand Faces, it has continued to fascinate and inspire me. Joseph Campbell peers through centuries and shows us that we are all connected by a basic need to hear stories and understand ourselves. As a book, it is wonderful to read; as illumination into the human condition, it is a revelation.” — George Lucas “Campbell’s words carry extraordinary weight, not only among scholars but among a wide range of other people who find his search down mythological pathways relevant to their lives today....The book for which he is most famous, The Hero with a Thousand Faces [is] a brilliant examination, through ancient hero myths, of man’s eternal struggle for identity.” — Time

Leadership as Meaning-Making

The Hero's Journey [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Leadership as Meaning-Making by JOHN. VARNEY Book Summary:

Based on the author's 30 years experience of management development and a background in design and psychology, this book takes a fresh look at leadership as a systemic shared phenomenon. It is one aspect of the evolutionary principle of bringing people to maturity as human beings - transforming the immature through purposeful adventure. This is not a "how-to" book of tools and techniques but is a guide to personal development. It plots the territory of the hero's journey (after Joseph Campbell) through unknown worlds. It explains the metaphorical relationship to personal and collective transformation by means of the cyclic pattern of the hero's journey, overlaid with the enneagram framework. Succeeding chapters spell out practical details for making the journey towards maturity, which alone makes leadership a viable possibility. Only such purposeful leadership will enable others to make their own equivalent journeys. If such people are engaged in work, then they will be more conscious and more effective.
